    The growing question is who is going to be left to stop Australia completing the whitewash?

    I retain some vague hope that Cook and/or Pietersen have at least one sizeable innings in them at some point in the series, but I'm not so hopeful we have the bowling to take advantage of it anymore, especially with Broad's foot worries.

    If I were to bet, 5-0 would get the Brumby quid.

    I thought KP was on track for a biggie 2nd dig at Perth tbh. Looked seriously good.

    I guess it's just a question of whether he can not get himself out for 150 balls or so.

    This thread will look pretty stupid when we chase down a huge target in the 4th innings

    KP and Cook obviously had nothing left in them. Over and out.

    In fact, as there is no precedent in Ashes history for back to back series, these last two can't count and, as a matter of law, need to be expunged from the record - so the Ashes are still held by whoever held them at the end of the series in 2010/11 - Burgey to confirm
